Cassandra: Unsigned Preflight File (2) - Vanishing Update
By Graham K. Rogers
Internal could include preferences for OS X (the last reboot was 11 days ago) and network differences as I switch from home to the office. I had experienced problems when using the proxy server at the office in the past, including synchronising with iCloud, so wondered if that may be part of the problem.
When I arrived at the office, I looked at the App Store again to see if the Autodesk 123 download would report the same, but there it was gone. The app itself, shown in Applications as 123D Design, opens and works fine.
As a double check (triple-check actually), I tried different networks: the university, iPhone Hotspot and another non-university connection I sometimes access. Each time I clicked on the update button in the App Store, it showed that nothing was available. I now presume (fingers crossed) that the problem relates to the certificate at the App Store end and this will be fixed sooner or later.
Curiouser and curiouser. . . .
